SheaMoisture African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo

Nov 15, 2013 - I know sulfates in shampoos can be drying to the hair that is close to your scalp, so for years, I have been looking for a non-sulfate shampoo that actually works on "dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis". This one claimed to, so I figured I would give it a try. All the other non-sulfate shampoos I have tried in the past have left tons of buildup on my scalp, but not this one! Yes, it really does work on those conditions. If I have a really bad case of flakes , I may have to use a shampoo with a sulfate once in a while, but for the most part, I can go sulfate free, using this shampoo!

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner

Nov 15, 2013 - I was looking for a product that was better for curly hair than what I was using, but still worked effectively on "dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis". This conditioner claims to, and lives up to that claim. I would recommend this to anyone who has curly hair, and the above mentioned scalp conditions.

SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

Jun 21, 2013 - I started using this several months ago. I first grabbed it by accident, thinking it was a curl cream. But when I read the directions, I realized it was a deep conditioner. Since I already had a deep conditioner, I used it as a pre-shampoo treatment for several months. Since I liked how well it worked in that role, I started using my deep conditioner (which can also double as an instant conditioner) as my instant conditioner, and started using this as both my pre-shampoo treatment and deep conditioner. It really works well, and leaves my hair feeling super soft! I have already purchased it again!

Beauty Naturals Supply & Salon - Gaithersburg, Maryland, United States
Stylist:
Catherine

Jun 07, 2013 - The haircut was fantastic! If the appointment had ended there, she would have received a 4 or a 5. But sadly, the appointment continued on. She admitted my hair is very difficult for even the best stylists to cut and style, because it is mostly 3c-size waves, and the parts that actually curl cris-cross, and "have a mind of their own". So granted, my hair is hard to figure out, but still that can't explain away some of Catherine's styling mistakes: -She shampooed and conditioned my hair, even though she admitted to not having a shampoo/conditioner that worked well on dandruff (She could've just wetted it with water from a spray bottle, and styled) -She did not put leave-in conditioner in my hair before she put in gel. -She did not put my hair in a plastic cap before having me get under the hood dryer My hair left looking good. I posted pictures of it on your Facebook page. However, by the next morning, my hair and scalp were a complete mess! My scalp was flaking, oily, and sticky. My hair was as dry as the Sahara Desert. And when I went to take down my pineapple, it was sticking straight up in the air! Needless to say, I have since re-washed my hair, using all my regular products. So I would recommend Catherine, but only for haircuts. If she offers to style your hair, kindly tell her no thanks. If I need salon services again before I move out of the DC area, I will either be going to Color Zone or Oasis. Sorry you didn't work out for me, Catherine. By the way, the products that she used that did not work were all Deva products, and I wrote about how they worked/did not work for me on CurlMart.
